seriously folks, i'm fascinated by the ranks of beauty here this week. just as the rest of the world and their fashion weeks ogle over generic, eastern european girls on the runway, NZ has definitely stepped up and broadened the boundaries of beauty far exceeding my understanding or expectations. these girls are really incredible looking. my favorite is stacey, the 16 year old blonde (below) whose vibe is totally eerie and haunting and then when you meet her she sounds all bubblegum-excited teen queen. brilliant.
